I can't believe I'm from the same state:
The internet is a wonderful tool. Notice the date on this story September 10, 2012. What happened the next day?
Why does the Obama administration treat you like you're stupid?
Jihadi groups in Egypt, including Islamic Jihad, the Sunni Group, and Al Gamaa Al Islamiyya have issued a statement threatening to burn the U.S. Embassy in Cairo to the ground.
According to El Fagr, they are calling for the immediate release of the Islamic jihadis who are imprisonment and in detention centers in the U.S. including Guantanamo Bay: “The group, which consists of many members from al-Qaeda, called [especially] for the quick release of the jihadi [mujahid] sheikh, Omar Abdul Rahman [the "Blind Sheikh"], whom they described as a scholar and jihadi who sacrificed his life for the Egyptian Umma, who was ignored by the Mubarak regime, and [President] Morsi is refusing to intervene on his behalf and release him, despite promising that he would. The Islamic Group has threatened to burn the U.S. Embassy in Cairo with those in it, and taking hostage those who remain [alive], unless the Blind Sheikh is immediately released.”
Mantis swings and misses again. You're really not to blame for being a victim of Obama's propaganda. Why would he want to blame a video for what they knew was a demonstration for the blind sheik?
On September 8, El Fagr reported on a threat to burn down the US embassy in Cairo unless Abdel-Rahman was released. Raymond Ibrahim described this threat as a unified statement by Egyptian Islamic Jihad and al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya.
A DHS report released on September 11 and reported by Fox News on September 19 indicated that a web statement incited "sons of Egypt" to pressure America to release Abdel-Rahman "even if it requires burning the embassy down with everyone in it." The Web statement was apparently posted on an Arabic-language forum on September 9, two days before the attack, and was in reference to the embassy in Egypt.
"Why he is not a hero"
Another reason why I'm for the death penalty.
Pope Francis and the gay lobby in the Vatican:
@sacredh He had a well thought-out plan.
I'm trying to figure out which part's my favorite:
- Ramming a steel security gate
- Jumping the Fence
- Thinking that he'll have enough time to vandalize the White House
- 8 Knives
- Hundreds of rounds of ammunition.....but no guns
I'm leaning towards the latter one as it feels like a great metaphor for the entire thing
@ahandout Idiot they can call for whatever they want. There would not have been the turnout or the hatred expressed if it wasn't for the video. On the other hand knowing that a call for demonstration on 9/11 is out there, now it makes sense why GOP operatives would want to upload the video in order to anger the masses and create a diplomatic incident prior to the election. Romney seemed to have that statement prepared awfully quickly after everything went down.
@ahandout They called for a protest. Do you think the protest got more or less violent after they heard about the You Tube Video?
@sacredh Gay Lobby?!? Has anyone seen their outfits. The whole church is one big gay lobby.
"Hints of a "gay lobby" at the Holy See surfaced last year in reports about a series of embarrassing leaks to Italian journalists."
The Village People" on repeat play and priests dressed as cops and construction workers was a dead giveaway.
@retiredvet OT, Remember we were commenting about "Rocky & Bullwinkle" yesterday? I found a VHS tape of "Fractured Fairy Tales" at the thrift store today. Now I can forget about reality when I watch it.
@retiredvet I can say Tea Bagger. The two seem to be synonymous.
*mutters darkly - something about Rask*
It was spurned by the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Barry's "Muslim Spring." That would have been really bad for his re-election, really bad. We all know who Obama is by now. He's the dirtiest of the dirty. He's a psychopathic politician that will stop at nothing to achieve power.
@sacredh The sad part is that Santa looks like half the guys at the Tea Party or NRA rallies.
@sacredh He's here to burn down your toys.
This links to some full episodes.
@roknsteve It's one of my favorites. Great satire.
And the "Muslim Spring" is a direct product of "Bringing Democracy to the Middle East" remind us again which Peabrain had that bright idea?
I get a chuckle out of it. If I was in a roomfull of rednecks and a TP recruiter came in, he'd head for me first.
Yeah. I wqas showing around an inspector most of the day and the conversation strayed to politics. He was shocked how leftist I was. I told him "I know. I look like a Klansman".
In some things, I'm to the left of liberal. In others, not so much. I think most of us are all over the place when it comes to our beliefs.
@sacredh I did all I kept thinking about is how many evangelical ministers must be rubbing one out watching it.
@sacredhSeriously indeed. Who raided Liberace's closet?
